I am an aging Luddite, but regardless won't click on anything like the link in the OP.

I dislike Valentino's off track shenanigans and manipulative behaviour as much as anyone, but can still acknowledge that he was a great rider. Even Stoner in his retirement seems to have come to some accommodation with him, realising that they validate each other, a position which Valentino seems to have come to as well. I could see the same happening with Lorenzo. Not MM though, on either side, for which I admire MM. He is going to do everything possible, including having eye surgery if necessary after his latest problem, to surpass Valentino's records.

He had some skills but he also received some advantages, at least early in his career.

The off track shenanigans, manipulative behaviour, mind games and use of his fan base to attempt to intimidate and disempower rivals, overwhelms my appreciation of his riding skills.
I am unable to appreciate or view favourably one who has consistently displayed such behaviour.

I too admire Marquez's refusal to submit and on track domination of him.
I also admire Jorge's strength and refusal to submit whilst being within the same team.
The pressure on him would have been immense but head to head he also withstood and came out on top.

If the other riders have to slow down to get old Rossi his 200th podium, it's gonna be a loooooong race.

LOL. When the riders in the press conference said they'd let Rossi pass after the flag, I was thinking they'd have to wait a while for him to get there.

To the OP, that’s the funniest thing I’ve read so far today. Though the day just started, it might come out on top at then end.

Troll much?

Rossi in top ten for Q2.

We remember Rossi used to have "miracle Sundays". When he was in mid pack during Friday and Saturday and then gained miracle speed in the race day. What kind of miracle was it? Why did it suddenly stop? Was he caught and told to stop it? Did he throw the caution into wind for his last race?

He reduced the combined weight of him and the bike by not taking along his bottle of Geritol, his Senior Citizen shopping discount cards, his cheap drugstore reading glasses, his hot water bottle, his bottle of stool softener, his false teeth, his orthopedic shoe inserts and his medic alert button (Help me, I’ve crashed and I can’t get up!).

The riders already did when they allowed Rossi to pass them in Valencia 2015 like Moses parted the Red Sea . Sure most pretended to put up some kind “resistance” except Petrucci who couldn’t wait to get out of Rossi way, but they knew better not to get the wrath of the yellow custard fans.

But yes Rossi would want to get his final podium this way. Just a hunch!!
